Located between the eastern city limits of Hemet and the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains, the Valle Vista Library has seen many changes since its original inception at the old Valle Vista School in 1931. The library’s first collection consisted of a room of donated books until the county decided to honor a request by the community to send a collection of children’s books and novels to the library for two months at a time. Several years and locations later, the Valle Vista Library continues to serve the needs of the community, the current 5,000 square foot library dedicated in 2001, offers a wide variety of services including books, a meeting room, public computers, and creative programming to encourage a lifetime of ideas and learning in a welcoming environment.
